mean, to your point, i read it entirely differently from steve. i read it as, i'm probably not going to appoint her -- >> fighting for her. >> i'll get a defense out automatically so that when i don't we don't have to relitigate this again and everyone knows where i stand on my friend susan rice. but you and i talked about this earli earlier, governor and made a bet with a colleague. >> not for $10,000. >> not. >> way more than that. >> you and i agreed against another colleague that if susan rice was put up for nomination we could think of a couple democrats who would oppose her nomination. >> right. >> why would obama waste capital on susan rice when he's got so many other things to worry about right now? >> s.e. makes a good point. the president has to use capital. we need republican cooperation to get anything done in this country, important things. >> right. >> why rip off a scab and an open sore trying to build that cooperation? that's on the one hand. on the other hand, the president i believe, deeply believes that this is unfair but i think his first goal was to stand by susa
ticket. but the pair is accused of scamming the real winner out of the jackpot. steve osunsami is here with the latest on that. >> here's why when you have a clerk check a lottery ticket to see if you won, you should sign it first and then ask for it back. two brothers scammed one of their customers out of a winning tick ticket. and then, tried to claim the prize. andy ashcar claims he bought that winning ticket himself, in 2006, at a syracuse convenience store where he worked. and then, waited six, long, years to split the money with his brother. >> i would hope that at some point in the last six years, he had been convinced that she did marry him for love. >> reporter: lottery officials say that was the first clue. love or not, no one waits that long to claim $5 million. >> $5 million. >> waited until now. >> reporter: but they put out a detailed press release anyway, hoping it would lead them to the winner. prosecutors are calling the brothers cheats and crooks, saying they swindled the ticket from a poor, old customer, authorities are calling john doe. a hard-working 49-year-old fa
of the agenda during president obama's first news conference since winning the election. steve handelsman has the report. >> reporter: president obama tried to show off the power, claiming voters backed his call for tax hikes on the rich. but that message had a distraction. the petraeus problem. >> i have no evidence at this point, from what i've seen, that classified information was disclosed, that in any way would have had a negative impact on our national security. >> reporter: the president's withholding judgnt on the fbi keeping secrets. but he praised his ex-cia chief. >> we're safer because of the work that dave petraeus has done. >> reporter: issue two was the fiscal cliff and taxes. >> what i'm not going to do is to extend further a tax cut for people who don't need it. >> reporter: republicans demand no rate hike. can there be a deal finally to cut deductions and raise what the rich pay in taxes. >> i recognize we're going to have to compromise. as i said on election night, compromise is hard. >> reporter: issue three, libya. four americans dead in benghazi. republicans today demand
? >> steve bowlin is the name. i met him back in 06 and have stayed in touch. he spoke to patraeus on friday and has spoken to him several times since then. and he said to me essentially he's tired. very clearly he has had to spend a lot of time since this whole thing broke dealing with family issues as you can imagine. but also other issues that have been coming up. questions and requests from federal officials and congress as well. he said what you probably already know that this began a couple months, two months after patraeus took the job at cia headquarters and ended several months ago which would put that around july, something like that. said it was a total screw up. it was a mistake on his part to do that. this is steve saying to me that he told him he had the best job in the world. great relationship in the white house. and he recognizes that this is just a failure of judgment. >> any concerns about whether national security has been compromised? >> there are some who are going to say yes just by virtue of the fact here is the cia director who is sworn to uphold the principles of th

minority leader, you're leader in the senate, mitch mcconnell told my colleague steve moore, says he does not believe that is his mandate. >> look. as you know i'm a fierce advocate for tax reform for all the reasons we talked about earlier. competitiveness. america is falling behind in terms of our competentive position and one of the main reasons is our tax system is antiquated. it is inefficient. there are ways to fix it. every other country in the world by the way, oecd countries, have transformed, reformed, lower the rates. think about it. we haven't touched it since ronald reagan really. in 1986. bill clinton did raise the rate one point but we haven't done anything to touch our rate and reform our code. every other country, all of them have. taxes gone from 16% to 15%. you do business there. this flow of capital will follow countries that have more competitive environment and taxes are one of them. yes, we have to reform the tax code. when you do that, i will get more revenue. it is guaranteed. again, sort of as i was talking about earlier. this is opportunities here. this is oppor
, steve? >> is this japan? >> they shouldn't be increasing the quota? >> why? >> because they have no idea about the stocks. they try to pretend there's one stock in the mediterranean, one stock in the atlantic, they have no idea. it's bad data leading to bad decision. >> if earn to take this conversation, you know what it would lead to? the tragedy of the commons. >> good point. >> when there's ownership of something, you conserve. when anybody -- everybody going after the same thing, they figure if i don't do it, somebody else is going to do it. if you own timber, every time you take down a tree, you plant two more. >> much better about protecting the resource and the europeans contend they have their own stock. but we've shown through the tagging data that these fish go across the mediterranean to the atlantic, up and down the coast, it's an extraordinary fish, a good one to preserve. >> okay. >> okay. >> let's go back to steve since you're there. you've got an interesting report, and i promise you i'll be listening very carefully about the fiscal cliff and who is going to be impacted.

? the answer is different groups will be affected very differently. steve liesman has more on the numbers. >> what we do know is if we go over the cliff, no change in what is mandated by those rules. everybody will pay more. we've divided up the country into quintiles, one-fifth, one-fifth, one-fifth. here's what happens with the cliff. for the lowest they go up by 3.7%, second 4.1%. if you're in the middle, where most people are, up 3.8% all the way to the top, 5.8%. what about the top 1%? their numbers go up by 7.2%. here's a way to think about it. this is what thelma and louise would pay extra if they went over the cliff. here's what mr. thurston howell would pay if they went over the cliff. let's take a look at the actual dollar values beyond percentage points. we know we have health care law taking effect and that will only affect the top fifth. here's your dollar values for the income bracket ets is. add on the amt, when they expire, get rid of the bush tax cuts. for the wealthy, a big chunk. it goes down to the second quintile. we get rid of some payroll tax cuts. down the line f y

to immigration. >> i was an immigration lawyer for 15 years, so as a conservative voice i understand what steve is saying, but i think we have to realize as republican party that we're never going to be a majority party if we don't figure out a way to reach to the hispanic, to reach the hispanic community. so we have defined what i call, and i been talking about this for two years but where to find a conservative consensus on immigration. we have to figure out how steve and i are going to sit and agree on a bill, and people at this table that will actually do something about a broken immigration system. one of the biggest things can service talk about often is that we want to fix a broken government. well, if you know anything about immigration law, the immigration system is absolutely broken in the united states. we need to get away that people can come to the united states to a legal system. we have to do something about border protection, i'm a big fan doing something with e-verify. all those things we have to do, but at the same time we have to forget what we pashtun we can't keep punting t
, working with steve israel to make sure we had the intellectual, financial, whatever resources to prevail in those races. my second time that i spent was to call people who were not successful in this particular election, because everybody here was getting a lot of calls. winning is very noisy. not succeeding is -- the bells don't ring that much. so i wanted to hear from them, what their views were about how we go forward. and then to absorb the calls of my colleagues to see what their view is. but i -- what i talked about here about changing the role of money and politics is really a very important motivator for me to stay in the leader's office. i think it must be done. when people say that, oh, and i read in the course of this week, money didn't make any difference in the campaign. they alwasted their money. well, that really wasn't true. the president of the united states, the most well-known famous respected person on the planet had to spend about $1 billion to set the record straight from what that other big money was putting out there. senate races, house races. tammy douglas had $

of the ryan plan. my overall point is, and unfortunately we have not seen this in the past few years, steve is coming more from the right than from my side, but the overall bank is that both sides are born to half to be willing to take on a significant amount of pain. i hope the willingness is there in order to make the grand bargain as they say. a great show, thank you very much host: thank you. guest: adding the caller makes a great point. for there to be a compromise, with the want to say is they want to see them change the entitlement programs. these are medicare, medicaid, potentially social security, although there's less clamoring to change that. want to see those programs changed so they are not just these open-ended things were the costs go up. went to see them reforms. so that does not keep adding to the deficit and increasing the federal budget. but the democrats want to see more revenue. want to see higher tax rates, they want republicans to agree to that. for this to be this big grand deal, both sides will have to come to an agreement. host: nancy has a recent story with this h
